We live in a time when meals have been transformed into a visual artform in their own right on social media. While Instagram showcases staged, highly-mannered images of ingredients, Rise Art’s artists are using food drawings to interrogate and parody this trend.
Sophie Iremonger explores modern attitudes to food. Her work Lobster Conglomerate sees a red lobster set against a backdrop of overflowing fruit. The crowd of apples and oranges are portrayed in textured pencil with an emphasis on light and shadow but the lobster is hollow. The crustacean has been drawn in a minimalist style using only red marker pen and rests on an otherwise empty blue-rimmed plate. The contrast replicates the vast difference between the every-day functional food eaten by most people and the idealised, disembodied meals that appear online.
